Stainless Steel Screws from AALL AMERICAN Fasteners

The stainless steel screw, long considered one of the world’s simple machines, is a solid cylinder wrapped with a helical plane.  To form a mechanical joint with a screw, the helical plane, referred to as the screw thread, rotates through a hole in the materials following or creating mating threads.

Screws are available in many sizes with different head and drive styles and thread pitches which vary depending on the material, method of installation and desired end result.

Screws having the ability to create mating threads as they are installed are referred to as self-tapping or self-drilling screws.  Self-tapping screws typically have threads down to the end or point of the screw and often require a pilot hole.  As they are installed, the self-tapping screw creates mating threads in the material.  Self-drilling screws on the other hand, do not require pre-drilled pilot holes as the tips are formed to drill the hole as they are installed.  The drilling tip is slightly smaller than the threads enabling the screw threads to form mating threads in the material.

Stainless steel fasteners are used in products and equipment for industries and applications including:

  • Food Services
  • Marinas / Boats
  • Architectural Design
  • Water Treatment
  • Medical / Surgical
  • Aerospace
  • Appliances
  • Automotive / Trailer
  • Chemical
  • Railings


         





Stainless steel is a well-known steel alloy that is prized for its ability to resist corrosion and rust.  It is widely used in many industries and products – think cutlery, food processing and preparation equipment, medical instruments, marine products, refrigerators, freezers, and washing machines.  Stainless steel is also widely used to make the fasteners that hold these products together.
 
Stainless steels are a family of ferrous, or iron alloys composed of steel (iron and carbon) with a minimum of 10.5% chromium content that gives it the corrosion resistant properties it is known for.  Generally speaking, the more chromium, the better the corrosion resistance.  Chromium creates a passive surface film that is self-healing and resistant to oxidation, corrosion, and/or rust.
